    Instead of closing threads because some posters put racist or offensive posts in the thread, why not just ban the posters who post the offensive material?

    Why do we have to close the entire thread?

    The other people that were posting or discussing the topic having done nothing wrong lose the thread.

    Kill the Posters, not the thread!

    It seems completely arbitrary at the moment. Check out these threads, which somebody has, at a whim, decided need to be closed...

    It appears that one of the mods believes that discussions shouldn't be allowed in the RHP forums. 🙄

    How would you have a way of knowing if it was one Moderator or 3 moderators that closed those threads?

    I would have closed it way earlier with the www. addy that is just plain SICK !!! Just have a look where it it goes to, and I am sure you would agree. I wouldn't click on it, and I am sure that you wouldn't either !

    I think it should be removed altogether, not just closed !

    I disagree. Some of the thread closing has been brilliant.
